Westwood Public Schools Reviews
The teachers are super nice and they try to aid students in their courses. However, the classes themselves seem limited and our interests are limited. It is a very athletic school, while a lot of the students try to be involved in performing arts programs. The school definitely needs more funding for its performing arts department due to the massive number of students involved in concerts and musicals.
Westwood High School has supported me and prompted me since freshman year in order to ensure my readiness for college. I feel as though Westwood has provided me with a safe learning community that has offered me many different opportunities to help me succeed in clubs, sports, and academics. Overall, I am pleased with my high school experience.
Westwood High School really felt like a community, not just a school. I personally was not involved in sports or sporting events (apart from filming them for the local TV station), but felt that if I wanted to be, I could easily enter the crowd and not only not be questioned, but welcomed, and I feel this attitude really applies to any part of Westwood High. I would say my few issues with the school lay more with individual faculty members or students, and are personal. Apart from the personal issues, maybe a more inclusive and informative health class would improve the school, but my experience with Westwood High School has been an overwhelmingly positive one.
